Batman: Arkham Asylum Looks Quite Hot

Check out the new trailer and screens, then just try to disagree. Betcha can't!
Oh, hello. I was just looking at the new trailer and screenshots released for Batman: Arkham Asylum today. I'd been tentatively kind of interested in the concept of the game--especially since EA's Dark Knight game apparently crashed and burned midway through development--but you just can't be too careful when licensed games are concerned. You can't let your hopes run away from you. That's a good way to get your heart broken.
But in this case, you should look at all this media too, because man, when did this start looking so good?
Best part for me is Mark Hamill and Kevin Conroy laying down the voice work, sounding like the Joker and Batman oughta. Hard to say about the gameplay, though, since this trailer doesn't exactly give you a great idea what the in-game experience will be like, with all its off camera angles and lack of HUD. Looks like a generic Gears of War cover mechanic in there at one point. Anyway, at the least, Arkham Asylum has certainly risen quite a few spots on my "hey keep an eye on these games" list as of today.
